Free Downloads

Ubercart 2.x

With this module, all products that have an associated file download feature will display a 'Download now' link for products that do not cost anything. This means that the user doesn't have to first add the product to their cart and then checkout.

It also includes a price formatter that shows the price as 'FREE' instead of '0.00' if enabled.

Re: Free Downloads

Great idea! Is there a version for D7?

It is a great idea, but.. Drupal 6 I couldn't get this working. Error:

warning: Parameter 2 to uc_free_downloads_theme_uc_price() expected to be a reference, value given in [path to drupal folder]/includes/ on line 669.

Right now, I use it to serve files from an Amazon S3 account, but I don't want people to be able to see the direct URL of the file they're downloading.

I'd love the link to be something like on the Files tab (i.e.

Is this possible when using an external URL like Amazon S3? Even if not, I'd be willing to switch back to my own server for downloads if this feature existed.

I've gotten some feedback on it, but don't have the knowledge to do it myself.

I'm willing to pay for it. Anyone interested?

Re: Free Downloads

Here's another weird issue.

Randomly, my site stopped showing:

1. The Free Downloads module in the modules list
2. Prices in the Cart and in Checkout

I disabled the module via PHPMyAdmin and everything works. What the heck could have happened?
